Can Ekta Kapoor woo the audience with upcoming web series Fixerr?
Going by the frequency at which Ekta Kapoor is producing web series, it is quite clear that the czarina of TV is looking to compete against the biggies like Amazon Prime and Netflix. So far she has received a lukewarm response with just a couple of shows like Haq Se, Yeh Meri Family and Apahran manage to make an impact on the audience.
Ekta has adopted a policy of casting mostly popular stars who have been part of her circle for years or who have been currently working on her ongoing TV shows. Latest to join the bandwagon is Shabbir Ahluwalia with latest Fixerr which is all set to stream from October 7. Shabbir is currently the lead of Ekta’s immensely popular show Kumkum Bhagya.
This show also marks the digital debut of Isha Koppikar and the return of Mahie Gill and Tigmanshu Dhulia.
Fixerr narrates the story of a good cop gone rogue. Shabbir Ahluwalia plays the good cop Malik who is suspended when he accidentally shoots a woman, his story then takes a wrong turn. Being part of the system, Malik knows all the loopholes. Now he makes use of them to his advantage. He becomes a fixer who takes the money and solves the problems of high and mighty.
The trailer looks botched up with too many things happening at the same time. Shabbir sizzles but he is pitted against seasoned actors like Mahie Gill, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Varun Badola. It would be interesting to see how he holds up against them. Rakhi Sawant makes a guest appearance in this trailer.
Fixerr is all set to stream from 7 October till then get your entertainment dose at FanKick app with daily polls and trivia challenges.
